Lea Michele's new album: We pitch the 'Glee' scenes!

lea-michele-louder.jpg

Will Rachel Berry cover Lea Michele this season?

If Glee is known for one thing, it’s song covers. And while earlier seasons gave us new twists on the biggest hits of the ’70s and ’80s, in recent years they’ve rushed to put their spins on current pop tracks blowing up the charts. (See: All the Katy Perry!) Which means when McKinley’s brightest star — which, duh, would be Lea Michele — dropped her first album (Louder, streaming now on iTunes), it would only be a matter of time before the pop songs make their debut on Glee.

Because it’s all but inevitable, we picked five of Michele’s Louder cuts and imagined how they might wind up on the show in the future. READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele's piano-ballad 'Battlefield': Hear her new single here

Lea Michele has already launched a “Cannonball,” and now she’s assessing the damage on the “Battlefield.”

Michele’s debut solo album, Louder, lands in March, and the march to its release is on with the arrival of the piano ballad “Battlefield,” which uses the same metaphor that Pat Benetar made popular several decades ago. It doesn’t have the same kind of propulsion as “Cannonball,” but it does show off her impressive pipes.

Give “Battlefield” a listen below — and try to figure out where that melody comes from, because it sounds deeply familiar: READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele's new single 'Cannonball': Hear it here

Lea Michele is already a staple on the Billboard charts, thanks to the many chart-crashing versions of pop songs she sings on Glee
(the show’s cast actually holds the record for most appearances in the history of the Hot 100).

But her new song “Cannonball” may give her the chance to earn her own original spot in the pop universe. It’s from her upcoming album Louder, which is scheduled for release on March 4, 2014.

You’ll be able to hear “Cannonball” live when Michele performs the song on Ellen this Thursday, December 12, but for now you can listen to the studio version below: READ FULL STORY

Watch a special live video of Marina and the Diamonds' 'How to Be a Heartbreaker' -- EXCLUSIVE

The Welsh songstress Marina and the Diamonds has been an official Big Deal back in the UK for a while, but now it’s time for the rest of us to catch up.

Marina’s most recent album, Electra Heart, debuted at No. 1 in back in Britain — and her opening gig for Coldplay’s American tour and quirky-pop singles like “How to Be a Heartbreaker”  have helped propel her to cult status Stateside.

But her upcoming Glee-ification could be exactly the thing that brings her a wider American audience. “Heartbreaker” will be getting the official Ryan Murphy stamp of approval on the upcoming March 14th episode of Glee (Lea Michele will be singing it, if you were wondering), and Marina will follow that up with her Lonely Hearts Club tour of America.

To celebrate, the singer has released an exclusive preview of the tour, and you can watch it exclusively here. (Sorry kids, Speedo’d dudes showering in slo-mo not included.)

The clip also serves as a preview of her upcoming Heartcore documentary, which will offer fans an inside look at Marina’s Electra Heart journey and the Lonely Hearts Club tour. Plus, conveniently, the clip also shows Marina taking the stage at the revered venue Emo’s in Austin — the very town where SXSW will go down next week. Synergy!

Check out Marina’s exclusive new “How to Be a Heartbreaker” clip below:

'Glee' announces 'Grease' album, track listings

GLEE-GREASE_500x500.jpg

Is this the one that you want?

During last night’s heartbreaking episode of Glee, there was a bright moment – at least for those of us who have a soft spot for all things Danny and Sandy. McKinley High’s fall musical this year will be Grease, and — if the previews are any indication — the show will be directed by Finn. Similar to West Side Story and especially Rocky Horror from two years ago, the episode will be an hour-long homage to the famous musical. Today, the show announced that the Grease episode will air Nov. 15, and a separate album Glee: The Music Presents Glease, which will feature nine numbers, will be released Nov. 6.

Check out the full track listing below: READ FULL STORY

'It's Time' rockers Imagine Dragons on their hit debut album, meeting Emma Watson, and getting covered on 'Glee'

Last year, a well-placed cover during an episode of Glee helped launch fun.’s “We Are Young” from alt-rock obscurity straight into the pop stratosphere.

Tonight’s fourth season premiere of Glee, which featured Blaine (Darren Criss) singing Imagine Dragons’ “It’s Time” to his boyfriend Kurt (Chris Colfer) accompanied by the stompy sounds of cheerleaders drumming on drinking cups, may do something similar for Las Vegas foursome.

Not that they’re exactly toiling in obscurity — Imagine Dragons, who were brought together by lead singer Dan Reynolds (second from the left) and guitarist Wayne Sermon (far left) in Vegas three years ago, already made waves this week when their full-length debut Night Visions bowed at number two on the Billboard 200, selling 83,000 copies its first week out. The album’s lead single “It’s Time,” which is featured in The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer, is also gaining steam — it rose from No. 63 to No. 49 on the Hot 100 this week, and after tonight’s cover on Glee (embedded below), we’re fully expecting it to continue to surge.

Check out our picks below and make sure to click through to the final page to listen to a track-for-track Spotify playlist of these “show tunes.” (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!)
